I finally made it to The Atlantic Residences last week to check out the building and models. Today, I’m going to show you the club room, library, theater, pool deck and lobby. Later I have some really beautiful shots to share of the model homes and the building exterior. Speaking of which, the exterior has influences of the Art Deco era, but on the inside, the finishes are more modern. Prices start from $183,700 to well over $1,000,000. They have something for everyone’s budget.
The building towers over everything else in at Atlantic Station and gives its owners some really great views. Those living on the backside of the building will have the best unobstructed views looking straight to downtown. One of the main reason people choose to live in a condo over a single family home is the view.
Pictured above: The Club Room dining bar with seating for ten. Very sophisticated area with a flatscreen tv, modern lighting and an antiqued mirrored wall. This is a great entertaining space and it can accommodate a lot of people. I know because I went to the ST Residential launch party and the room was completely packed.
This is a full service building. Here’s a list of what’s available to residents:
- Full-size pool with hot tub spa overlooking the skyline
- Sundeck with WiFi, professional grills and park-like landscaping
- Large fitness center with state-of-the-art equipment (somehow I missed this)
- Poolside terrace with stack stone fireplace
- Clubroom with flat screen TVs and Internet kiosks
- 24-hour concierge, Doorman/porter services
- Catering kitchen
- Private screening room and library
- High-speed Internet service throughout
- A-la-carte services are also available like dry cleaning pickup and maid service.
Below: Standing in the entry to the Club Room. There is a comfortable seating area to the left with a tv and internet kiosks behind it. This space is quite large and can accommodate a large number of guests. The catering kitchen is to the right (accessible through a pass-through during a party). The doors to the far left lead out to the pool deck.
Below: The Library. There aren’t too many books in this space, but it is a great place to enjoy with friends and family. You can close this space off and reserve it for a small party. There is a large card table to the right and a writing desk just behind the lamps. I didn’t show it in the photo, but there is a fireplace and television in front of the seating area.
Below: The Theater. I didn’t get to test out the sound system in this room, but I’m sure it’s well insulated. The screen is quite large and I’m certain football fans will be reserving the room for many parties.
Below: The stacked stone fireplace is one of my favorite elements outside and I know we could be enjoying it with the weather we currently have. There are grills available on the other side of the grass in case you want to cookout!
Below: The pool deck. There is lots of seating and commanding views anywhere your choose to relax. The pool is an interested shape, not your average rectangular pool. The lounge chairs surrounding the pool have the same comfortable cushions as below.
Below: The lobby ceiling. I really liked the starburst design, so I thought I would share it with you.
Below: This is what greets you as you enter the building from 17th Street. Brown and beige terrazzo floors are used throughout. (You mostly see these floors in older Florida homes.) This is probably the only influence of art deco inside the building.
Below: The concierge is available 24/7.
What is my overall impression of The Atlantic? I really like the building, the finishes and the amenities. Since ST Residential has taken over, they have upgraded a lot of things that were lacking in the building. They started with the entrance off 17th Street by adding some beautiful planters with classically shaped topiaries. Inside, they stepped everything up a notch… and it really needed it. Quite often developers don’t put everything in until they reach a certain critical mass, mostly due to the lack of residents. You always see upgrades to a building as it becomes more full with people living there.
If you are going to live at Atlantic Station and you want to have some luxury in your life, The Atlantic would be a great choice. You can literally walk everywhere – grocery store, retail shops, nightlife, restaurants, hotel… it’s all right there.
What’s for sale in the building? Take a look at the MLS listings and let me know if you want to take a look in person.
FHA Financing is available with as little as 3.5% down.
